The Houston Astros looked to be separating themselves from the rest of the American League West just two weeks ago, but the Oakland Athletics have quickly closed the gap. The Athletics put their 10-game winning streak on the line Tuesday when they continue their three-game series against the visiting Los Angeles Angels.

Josh Phegley, Jurickson Profar and Matt Chapman each homered and Stephen Piscotty added a two-run double in Monday’s 8-5 victory as Oakland moved a season-high four games over .500 and remained 6 1/2 games back of first-place Houston. Phegley has homered in back-to-back contests and Piscotty has reached base safely in 23 straight games for the power-hitting Athletics, who have gone deep 16 times during their winning streak. The Angels received a solo homer from Albert Pujols but lost for the sixth time in their last eight games after starter Trevor Cahill allowed six runs in 4 1/3 innings. Kole Calhoun doubled twice and has six hits in his last nine at-bats following a 1-for-17 skid.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Angels RH Nick Tropeano (2018: 5-6, 4.74 ERA) vs. Athletics RH Frankie Montas (6-2, 2.40)

The Angels are expected to use a reliever as an opener in front of Tropeano, who will be promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake after going 1-1 with a 7.66 ERA in five starts for the Bees. The 28-year-old native New Yorker made 14 starts for the Angels last season, finishing with a 5-6 record and 4.74 ERA over 76 innings. Tropeano is pitching for the first time since May 19, when he allowed two runs over five innings in a 9-2 victory over the Las Vegas Aviators.

Montas’ breakout season continued last Wednesday, when he allowed five hits over six shutout frames in a 7-2 win over Cleveland. The 26-year-old native of the Dominican Republic has pitched at least six innings in four straight starts, allowing a total of five runs with 31 strikeouts over that stretch. Calhoun is 4-for-6 with a home run against Montas, who is 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA in four career games (one starts) versus the Angels.
